I love love watching/hearing about hauls. I'm interested in what people got and what they recommend. I went to Sephora today, and went out with an empty wallet. lol. I manly went to get skincare products:
Korres Milk Protein Cleanser
Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening Refining Buff Cleanser
Boscia Bright White Mask
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Reflief
Givenchy Mister Mat
Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment
Fresh Face Polish
What did you all get recently?
Ok, I'm done buying nail polishes. =X
Sephora haul + a pound of tea (6 flavors) from Teavana
Also, I was painfully reminded of why I really shouldn't go to the mall...I get lured in by saleslady waaaay too easily. She mentioned facial massage and samples with purchase, I thought it's an actual facial massage, but it's really just somebody else applying 2-3 different product to your face...and I end up spending $70 for a set of skincare (albeit good) that I COMPLETELY do NOT need....T.T
I mean, a $30 splurge is ok, but $70....T.T......it's also waaay too hot now, so I won't be using the set until the fall. Oh well. As for the tea, the full name's too long but it's basically:
- dragonfruit something
- something guava
- carribean matai (have coconut in it)
- peach...something (not sutra, not momotaro)
- blueberry bliss
Basically I want the 20% discount they only offer if you buy 1lb of tea, and I have a $10 off only if you buy $50. Oh well, I intended to loose 5lbs this week but ended up gaining 5lbs, so if I eat less and drink more tea, that should work.
@beautytester - Love love love all of it!!!! I have no sales resistance too! I really try to avoid the makeup counters like the plague because those ladies know that I am a sucker for makeup and they are drawn to me like a moth to a flame!
Haha, I think the Shiseido lady have telepathy. In any case, the samples were all Shiseido Luscent stuff, which is what I was interested in, and they just "happened" to have a The Skincare (their basic line) kit left so I can try everything, so....
@beautytester I am loving my Shiseido skin care. I have the Extra Gentle Cleansing foam (I use less than a pea size) each washing. And the same Softener as you. I use the Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Day Emulsion. Ive been impressed so far.
What is the sparkly blue teal/blue OPI color you bought?
the sparkly is the OPI jewelry top coat, not your average turqoise. The blue is Skinny Jeans.
I used the sparkle on my thumb, and the blue on my pinky/middle finger:
Re: Haul[ Edited ]
Alright, I have spent around $300 on makeup alone over the past few days, and here goes.
